We're very pleased so far with our Xterra. It has room for our kids and is very versatile. Interior is easy to clean, big plus with kids, VERY capable offroad. Engine has plenty of power, which I upgraded with an air intake and exhaust system, probably got me 15 to 20 extra HP. Now it sounds as good as it goes. Handles well and is easy to park.
Off road capability, low maint. interior, Power of V6, feels like a V8. Exterior styling. Very sporty and turns heads.
Interior materials could be of higher quality tho everything fits very well. Fuel economy could be better but then again, its an SUV.
